Design I love…

October 1, 2009



So it’s natural that as the weather gets colder we focus more on houseld projects. I found this picture and post over at brooklynlimestone where she created this great guest room for less than $700. I especially like the color of the walls and the bedding.  A peak at the price breakdown has inspired to take a trip to my local Walmart and JC Penny this weekend.  Wish me luck on some great finds!


Oh joy…

I’m sorry I’ve been away, I was traveling for work. I had a chance to visit Madison, Wisconsin. I met some very interesting people, had a chance to sample some great cheeses and ate at a wonderful farm to table restuarant called Harvest (if you’re visiting Madison be sure to check it out). The hierloom tomato salad with goat cheese and fresh pepper was so simple yet amazing.

Needless to say, as is always the case after traveling, I have tons of e-mails to check. While scrolling through my inbox, I came across an e-mail notifying me that ABC Carpet and Home now has online shopping. Oh joy! I realize because of the unique and plentiful inventory, I know the availability of what is online will differ significantly from what is actually in the story but that’s ok, I’m just so pleased I can at least have access to some of the goodies at ABC without having to trek to New York.

The (un)wedding…

mosaic4c6a7a95572acc3a58c2bc874a6b5af55257cbb0Happy Friday! I love the idea of the (un)wedding. Maybe because of late there seems to be so much marketing around weddings and a lot less emphasis on marriages.  This is a nice idea for those who aren’t into all the fanfare of a traditional wedding.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Dream Kitchen…

September 8, 2009


So on this Tuesday I had to post pictures of this amazing kitchen that I found over at House Beautiful. I can only imagine preparing and serving a wonderful meal to family and friends at this table. Really, where to start? Should I rehash the amazing design elements like the flooring and cabinets or jump right into decor like the table? The incredible comfy and chic chairs? And, let’s not overlook the chandelier. Every element is completely amazing and if I could have any kitchen this would be it!
